Why Dress for Success?
I believe in the power of dress to change a woman's life. And, many women do not have the power to change their lives themselves.
Dress for Success exists to help women find the clothing and skills to thrive in work and life. Since starting operations in 1997, Dress for Success has expanded to more than 150 cities in 28 countries and has helped nearly one million women work towards self-sufficiency.
One year ago I opened the Pink Heart Shop, a shop-within-a-shop in my Etsy store, with 100% of proceeds going to Dress for Success Worldwide. In the aftermath of Hurricane Harvey, I sent Pink Heart Shop proceeds to Dress for Success Houston, which was on the ground delivering donations to people in need.
Since starting the Pink Heart Shop, I have received two generous donations of vintage clothing for me to sell, from people interested in contributing to this cause.
I'm proud and happy to say that, with your help, I have been able to donate $1123.50 this year.
There are 40 items in the Pink Heart Shop today, with more added each week. Consider adding something to your own sartorial strength while assisting someone less fortunate to do the same.
